Blame It On Beckett By John Morogiello November 1 thru November 17Evening Shows 7:30 p.m.Sunday Matinees 2:30 p.m. Sponsored by Centennial Bank Overwhelmed by the deluge of scripts pouring into the small regional theatre where he works, Foley has grown cynical and slack, as submissions now mount toward the ceiling. And having long since despaired of finding a diamond in the rough, he has instead pinned his hopes on making himself indispensable as dramaturg to his company's pet playwright, Tina Fike, whose work regularly makes the leap to New York. Into Jim's derelict lair steps Heidi Bishop, a bright-eyed, newly minted MBA who hopes merely to make the leap from box office to back office. While he first thinks of her as "Mary Poppins," it turns out "Eve Harrington" might be more like it. It won't be long before Heidi, her idealism matched only by her ambition, does her utmost to outshine her supposed mentor.
